HIBS have taken the Premiership by storm on their return – but I've not been surprised.

On the anteposts I tipped them to finish above Hearts (3-1) and for a top-six finish (11-10).

Both look shoe-ins already and if they can keep it going Neil Lennon's men will be battling with Aberdeen and possibly Rangers for second spot.

I confidently tipped Hibs at odds against to beat Partick on day one and while I fancied them last week at Ibrox I made over 2.5 match goals my bet of the day as well as predicting over 3.5 and a red card – and there could have been several.

Easter Road will be packed today with fans expecting to pick up another three points against Hamilton. And as long as the newly-promoted side can handle being big favourites and don't take their rivals lightly they should do the business at 11-20 with William Hill.

It's a rubbish price so instead take Hibs to score over 1.5 goals at 4-6 with McBookie or even over 2.5 at 9-4 at 85-40. I also like Hibs and over 2.5 match goals at 7-5 with Paddy Power.

Hibs have netted three or more in their three games this season and while Accies will be lifted by their 3-0 defeat of Dundee last week they aren't as good away from their plastic pitch.

Simon Murray netted at Ibrox to take his tally to 10 and could have had a hat-trick. He is 11-10 to score again – as is Anthony Stokes – but if he starts the value could be with Vykintas Slivka who looks big at 7-1 with William Hill to net at anytime and 22-1 at McBookie to break the deadlock.

The ex-Juventus man hit a cracking volley against Rangers and his price compares nicely to the 15-4 on Murray and Stokes.

Rangers entertain Edinburgh opponents for the second week running and should notch a better result.

They are 13-20 at McBookie to beat Hearts and last week it was a 50-50 match until Ryan Jack was red-carded.

The Jambos picked up a much-needed three points at Killie and welcome back Rangers target Jamie Walker while Isma Goncalves's red card has been rescinded.

I like the look of Rangers to win and over 2.5 match goals at 6-4 with Coral.

McBookie are offering 10-1 a player will be sent off in the Premiership this weekend only for the card to be rescinded. Three out of the four red cards shown last Saturday were deemed to be mistakes.

The firm is offering 20-1 Jack again receives his marching orders and 33-1 Goncalves walks again.

Celtic, boosted by the news Patrick Roberts will return from Man City next week, head to Kilmarnock on the back of their 5-0 thrashing of Astana that puts them on the verge of the Champions League group stage.

Even with such a huge lead Brendan Rodgers is likely to make wholesale changes. Will that tempt punters to back Killie at 18-1 with Ladbrokes – probably not? A weakened Celtic side hammered the Ayrshire men 5-0 in the Betfred Cup and should have enough to win on the plastic.

Celtic are no value at 2-11 with Ladbrokes and the advice is to wait for line-ups before having a bet.

Aberdeen are ticking along nicely and should beat Dundee for the eighth time in nine Dens Park meetings. The Dons are 1-3 at Ladbrokes and 23-20 with McBookie to win to nil against rivals who have netted once in seven trips to the Granite City.

In the Championship Dundee United are short-priced favourites at home to Brechin and I fancy them to score 3+ at evens with McBookie.

Dunfermline and Livingston have started the season well and both could win at home at big prices. The Pars hammered Inverness 5-1 last week and are 31-20 at bet365 to beat at Falkirk side who haven't yet started.

Livi beat St Mirren in the Betfred Cup and face a side battered at Morton and scared by East Kilbride in midweek. They look worth a risk at 29-20 with McBookie or even 4-5 draw no bet.

In League One I like Ayr who have scored 3+ against everyone but Hibs in their last five games. They are 37-40 to win at Stranraer and if you think they can stay on the goal trail consider over 3.5 goals at 15-2 or Coral or a speculative 22-1 for over 4.5.

Albion Rovers v Airdrie has produced 27 goals in six meetings and over 3.5 goals pays 6-4 at unibet.

In League Two I like Peterhead at Stenhousemuir. Again it's a goal-laden fixture with 26 goals in six playings so back the Blue Toon and over 2.5 goals at 19-10 with Ladbrokes.
